4C Spider Priced

by David Zatz on

Automotive News reported that the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider will start at $65,495 (including destination) in the United States, with sales of the convertible  to start in August. The coupe started selling in the United States, in small numbers, last year; both are made in Modena, Italy. Production of the composite-body light cars is done by hand, and production is not expected to rise over 2,500 per year; North American sales will account for over a third of that number.


Buyers can choose options include a hard top ($3,500), halo ($2,750), and performance exhaust ($3,000).  The 4C coupe has a starting price of $55,495 and is in short supply.

Despite one moderately high-profile dealership closing, Alfa Romeo expects to have two hundred American dealers by the first quarter of 2016, when the brand’s first new volume model is to go on sale.

The mid-sized sedan will have rear wheel drive; its basic underpinnings and dimensions have, according to various sources, been co-developed with Chrysler, but the car itself was engineered in Italy and is expected to use either an exclusive engine or to share with a high-end brand such as Maserati.  It will be unveiled early, on June 24, 2015, at the re-opening of the Alfa Romeo museum in Milan, Italy, to celebrate Alfa Romeo’s 105th birthday. (As mentioned earlier, while Chrysler Corporation dates to 1925 and the Chrysler brand to 1924, the company which first made Chryslers would be 111 this year.)

The sedan is to compete with BMW, Porsche, Mercedes, and Audi and is one of eight new Alfa Romeo cars, with a worldwide sales target of 400,000, more than a quarter of which are to be sold in North America. Two crossovers will follow the sedan.
